If Samson's digestion had been out of
order, and his blood impure, there would
probably have been a different story to tell
about the lion. Men, nowadays, do not or
dinarily have to wrestle with lions. But
there are business problems to struggle with
and business difficulties to overcome, that
are calculated to test their strength and en
durance fully as much, if not more, than the
lion did Samson's. A man to be successful
must he in good physical condition. This is
as true of the man who works with his mind
as of the man who works with his muscles.
The man whose brain is poisoned with im-
J pure blood will suffer from headaches and
be listless and lacking in energy, mint tor
business, unfit for pleasure. Dr. Piece's
Golden Medical Disco very stimulates the di
gestive organs, invigorates the liver, soothes
and strengthens the nerves and fills the
arteries with the rich, red, pure blood of
health. It restores waning energies. It
builds up strength. It makes sound, healthy
flesh. It should be taTcen hy every man
or woman who is 'weak, sick, run - down,
